BIP HiveCheck Results for Feb 23rd – March 9th

Looking ahead to another season it’s always interesting to start polling where beekeepers are sourcing their colonies. Our WordCloud for the week starts to give us a hint…there’s a lot of locally raised nuc and queen producers building followings in their communities! With packages hovering around $200 this year in some places it makes a lot of sense to make your own bees with your neighbors. For a great talk on the “Sustainable Apiary” check out this video by acclaimed beekeeper Mike Palmer. I just saw Mike give this talk at the Chester County Beekeeper Conference and it was fantastic. Make sure to take a look!
